Carmageddon: Reincarnation, which revives the “points for pedestrians” destruction derby-style car game series, is finally out of Steam Early Access. The game was released earlier this week after being delayed from its original April 22 launch date.
“In 1997, a videogame was released that caused establishment scandal and media hysteria around the world,” developer Stainless Games said. “Banned in some countries, censored in others, and even condemned by a Pope [not the actual Pope, but a British minister of parliament named Pope], overnight it became the poster child for everything that’s wrong in society… and therefore right in a videogame…And now, Stainless Games is proud to announce the FULL RELEASE of the latest ground-breaking game in the series.”
The final game’s Career Mode spans 16 chapters, each including 3-4 events, with 50 events to compete in overall. The multiplayer mode will allow up to eight players online or over LAN, and includes six event types: Classic Carmageddon, Car Crusher, Fox ‘n’ Hounds, Ped Chase, Death Race, and Checkpoint Stampede.
There are also nine maps, 36 race routes, and 24 vehicles to choose from, unless you were a Kickstarter backer, which will get you a special edition bonus car.
The game was funded on Kickstarter in 2012 with over $625,000, and in 2013 Stainless Games raised an additional $3.5 million from Bullfrog Productions founder Les Edgar, which the developer said would allow it to bring Carmageddon: Reincarnation to Xbox One and PlayStation 4 as well as PC.
